Artists at Shell Point Retirement Community have been preparing for the past 12 months in anticipation of this weekend’s upcoming Shell Point Art Show and Sale, which is scheduled on March 14, 15, and 16 in The Woodlands Commons at Shell Point. The show runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, March 14 and 15, and from noon to 3 p.m. on Sunday, March 16. This event is free and open to the public.
“Shell Point resident artists are extremely talented, and the variety of artwork they produce is amazing,” said Karen Hubbard, Shell Point resident and art show coordinator.
Co-coordinator Sharon Terestenyi added “This year’s exhibit will feature dozens of talented artists and a variety of mediums on display including acrylic, oil, pastel, watercolor, pencil, canvas, clay, wood, glass, pottery, photography and more, all created by Shell Point residents.”
“Last year, hundreds of people attended this annual show, and guests raved about the outstanding quality of work,” said Lynn Schneider, assistant vice president of communications for the community. “Some Shell Point residents were professional artists in the past, while others have explored and developed their artistic skills in retirement. Many residents now enjoy taking painting and photography classes through our year-round continuing education program: The Academy of Lifelong Learning,” Schneider added.
Not only is the public invited to see the art on display, they also have the opportunity to purchase original pieces. Plus, the organizing committee has developed some features to keep the art show interactive and exciting, including a complimentary “make-your-own watercolor greeting card” activity. Guests will also have a chance to win $10 in “Lucky Bucks” given every hour to be spent right there at the show.
The 2014 Shell Point Art Show and Sale will be held on in The Woodlands Commons at Shell Point. For more information, please call Melody Desilets, volunteer coordinator at (239) 454-2290, or visit www.shellpoint.org.
